A wedding website is a unique way to communicate all of your wedding plans to your guests. From the location to your gift registry, everything can be in one place.Below are some positive elements of creating a wedding website as well as some recommended information you should include.
Creating a wedding website provides you the opportunity to brand your event. The website will give guests their first glimpse of your wedding, so it is important to make it reflect your style (consider theme, font, and colors). Including a photo gallery that consists of your engagement photos and pictures from throughout your relationship as well as the story of how you met and fell in love would be a great way to give your website a personal touch. You could even incorporate your wedding party by adding their pictures as well as a small biography for each person.
Include the link to your personal wedding website on your save-the-dates. This will provide guests with all of the necessary information to prepare and plan for your big day.
“When is the ceremony?” “How do I get the reduced hotel rate?” “Where are you registered?”
Avoid receiving millions of texts, calls, and emails asking questions of this nature by posting all of your important details on your wedding website.
Make sure you include:
This should include times and information for the day of timeline or any other events that you will be hosting throughout the course of your wedding day/weekend.
Include the address and names of where each event will take place – this is especially important if you will be using multiple venues. Consider including a map and layout of all locations.
If you have a room block, provide guests with a direct link to receive the special room rate. Another option would be to provide guests with a list of suggested hotel options in the area.
Post information about local airports, rental car services, public transportation, and parking.
Notify your guests of where you are registered. If possible, provide links to your registry for guest convenience.
If using one, let your guests know what wedding hashtag you will be using. Encourage guests to use it as they upload pictures from all of your wedding festivities.
